How to get more holidays

By Rebecca Plant

Rebecca & Edward Plant 39

We’re coming to you today from a small island off the coast of Townsville, North Queensland, where there is not much to do except beach, walk and relax. We love it so much and know that when we need to completely break free from our everyday life, this is where we come.

But our chill out over the past week, as well as a conversation with a new client over the weekend, prompted us to tackle the topic of How to create room for more breaks together — or holidays. Ed actually calls the things we’ll cover today, The Holiday Maker.

In today’s episode we talk about:

  • Why couples who work together don’t get long holidays.
  • How your business set up is keeping you stuck in this cycle.
  • The ICB Accelerator that supports you to make change.
  • How we have spent the past 5 days with our kids.
  • Our personal plan to get more breaks into our 2019 calendar.
